Gulf coast braces for potential hurricane as Ida barrels towards US
The Guardian says communities along the US Gulf coast are braced for a potentially significant hurricane over the weekend as Tropical Storm Ida barrels towards the US and the National Hurricane Center (NHC) warned of increased risk of life-threatening weather conditions from Sunday evening into Monday morning.
Hurricane warnings were issued across coastal communities in Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama, along with the city of New Orleans itself on Thursday night as Louisiana’s governor, John Bel Edwards, declared a state of emergency ahead of Ida’s expected upgrade to a hurricane with potential for 110mph winds.
